The term Trail Running
What is Trail Running about?
Running on trails brings us closer to nature and demands the whole body. Rough terrain and obstacles train not only physical endurance but also coordination and concentration. As the whole body needs to be stabilized, more muscle groups are used than when road running.
The ground terrain changes from soft paths, natural and root paths to meadows and scree fields. You run through streambeds or along hiking trails. Sometimes you follow well-trodden paths, sometimes you go cross-country.
Trail Running is not just about kilometers and times, but also about experience, adventure and challenge.
What Trail Running newcomers should pay attention to
Trail Running is a sport that anyone can practice. However, having a basic level of fitness is important. It is important that you slowly adapt to the new strain so that your body can adjust to the terrain. The muscles in the feet, legs and upper body are put under a lot of strain during Trail Running.
Beginners should choose easier trails and pay attention to where they step. If you reach your limits, you will slow down – especially at the beginning you don't necessarily have to jog up the mountain. You should not be afraid of wet feet, puddles and muddy ground as well as dirty clothes.
